Let's Get Organized with Altered Pages


Happy Monday!! We are sharing storage ideas this month at Altered Pages.

This is pictures of a wardrobe built by my great uncle around 100 years ago using cedar off his farm.
My husband revamped it for one of my storage units.

I have all my deco paints in the main section so I can easily reach them. Have a plastic storage box with their stencils on the upper level, a handmade basket with my finished cards, a square drawer box that holds all my envelopes (neatly labeled).

The bottom layer holds my many collected frames, an unfinished quilt, a tackle box with tools, beads, metal stuff.

On the side (pic #2) I have a metal wire hanger attached to the wardrobe (was originally used for canned goods-bought at Lowe's) I store my older Stampin up stamps. 
On the tiptop (pic #3) we bought a old timey storage box and took the legs off & hoisted up onto the wardrobe. I keep things I recycle: file folders, clipboards, and cardboard.

On top of the unit I have a big plastic tub for yarn and mini albums I've started & not finished.

This is just one corner of my room!!  Later in the month, I will charge via video my remaining room.  I'll need time to straighten up. Been making Valentine's cards like CRAZY!


 So where do I store my supplies from Altered Pages????   You'll have to check back Feb 16th. I'm going to do a video with lots more options!!

All month long our designers will be sharing ideas.  Check in daily!! Altered pages....

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

DecoArt new Premium Acrylic Mixed Media Paint Home Project

Recycling and creating something new has always been one of my favorite things to do.   The square "shadow box" I've been saving for quite some time and now have forgotten what came in it.  It's part of packaging. The initial C I purchased from Joanne's. The "shadowbox" had a couple of layers in the bottom. Gesso, white acrylic, dry brushed black, titan buff. I used a small round brush to paint in the lines.   The new Premium Acrylic paint leaves behind a satin finish.  Really nice. The background -which is a recycled 16x20 canvas coated in white gesso, was painted with Americana Deep Burgundy. Once dry, I dry brushed some Titan Buff (Premium acrylic) randomly. I painted the C in black premium acrylic.  Glued it to the bottom right corner of the shadowbox with tacky glue. I used a whie Posca pen to write my favorite verse around the edges of the shadowbox.  I used Tacky glue and hot glue to adhere the flowers.  I like to use both. Hot glue helps it sti…
